Who invented beds? When did we start cleaning our teeth? How old are wine and beer? Traditional histories focus on wars, politics and great upheavals, neglecting the texture of everyday life. Not this book. Structured around the routines of a single day, this entertaining romp from a consultant to the BBC children's series Horrible Histories scours Roman rubbish bins, Egyptian tombs and Victorian sewers to reveal the origin and development of the rituals we take for granted.
